New York rapper Ja Rule isn’t letting the Internet beat him to a pulp. Instead, the Queens native stepped forward to address a now-viral cringe video of himself playing to a less than thrilled crowd.

Rule hit up his social media channels this weekend to address online bashing.

Over the past few hours, the Internet has flamed Rule over the performance tensions.

This weekend, Ja pulled through for a halftime performance during a Milwaukee Bucks game.
